Always a Great Day to Receive a Card

My colleague and friend gave me this card that’s she’s been saving for when she’d see me. 

She’s had it for me for a year, for my retirement last June. 

We gathered together for another colleague’s retirement Thursday evening. 

I love that she gave it to me tonight and I’m reading the message on the little change purse. 

Plus a nice gift card to spend at the bookstore. Wow! It’s a feel good message all around and never too late. Fun to receive.

Thanks Jen. 


Dear photographer Ken Graves.  

Great photo. Great card. 

Hope you don’t mind my posting it.  

And P.S. 

Love to Jen for always making me laugh at work

Remembering Mary Therese

Tulips for Mary

No matter if decades pass since you’ve seen one another.

You shared something special and exciting a long time ago.

When you remember, they’re younger and laughing and you’re younger and laughing, too.  Life was good.

All those years I didn’t mail Christmas cards.

Wish I’d kept in better touch.  You hear the sad news.

These tulips are for Mary Therese who passed May 12th.

There’s a celebration of her life at Our Lady of the Pines in Black Forest, Colorado Friday morning, but I’m in Pittsburgh.

I want to tell her beloved husband, Joe, I’m sorry, I remember and I will keep them both in my heart.

Hers is a life to celebrate!
